Yellow Flame Grevillea, or Honey Grevillea

Grevillea eriostachya

Description:

a bushy shrub 1.5 to 2 metres tall with flower stems emerging 30cm or so above the foliage, usually in late winter and spring. Flowers may also appear in response to seasonal rainfall and are greenish in bud but open to a spectacular golden-yellow colour. The foliage is grey-green, the leaf lobes (usually 2-7) being long and fine with short dense hairs on the upper surface.

Habitat:

Karijini National Park, Western Australia.

Notes:

The flowers contain thick, honey-like nectar which can be sucked directly from the flowers; a favourite treat for the native Anangu children. The flowers can also be dipped in water to make a sweet drink.
